Hi there guys as you will see in my last post I am having trouble with my pond its gone green, Just a question if my UV is 2 years old but still shines bright could it be the reason my pond has gone green, should i change it. I read somewere it is only good for 9 months is that even if they shining..

Hi Shawn

Yes Marius is correct. They shine but there is no more strength in the ultra violet rays.

9 months is the norm, but one can extend it if you switch it off when not needed.
